Atkins & Gambon - All That Fall by Samuel Beckett - Jermyn
Eileen Atkins & Michael Gambon are to star in All That Fall, a radio play by Samuel Beckett, directed by Trevor Nunn, at the Jermyn Street Theatre, a small 70 seat Off West End venue in Piccadilly, central London, from 9 Oct to 3 Nov 2012.
The work, which has never been seen in London before, charts the journey of old and unwieldy Mrs Rooney as she drags herself towards a railway station on a Saturday lunchtime to meet her blind husband on his way back from the office to guide him home. Along the way she passes the time of day with a man with a dung cart and a man with a bicycle. A third man with a motor-car offers her a lift and a church-struck spinster helps her up the station steps.
